The original injury was just a broken leg and crushed ankle. Now, time seems to be the biggest foe. They can't seem to repair the ankle adquately, so I get a build up of bone that eventually has to be removed. This last one was caused when I jumped off my tractor one Saturday and twisted the ankle. Couldn't walk the rest of the weekend and when I went to the doctor on Monday, he discovered that I had tore a tendon because the bone had grown around a ligament in my ankle. Plus, like High Flow said, as we get older, we don't heal as fast. (I am about three months shy of the big 4-0!?!)
Anyway, I don't post much, but read a lot and knew of your injury. When you mentioned the crutches today, I had to respond. (Plus I am bored at work...)
Well, best wishes and hope you get that boot!

Jesus dude - that just sounds horrid - i hope things are evening out in your ankle for you - i can just picture what is going on (unfortunately) - that is real rough. Mine is just a broken leg although the bone "halves" are sitting 50/50 against itself and at a 45 degree angle - hence the long time. If i stepped on it, it would be like snow sliding off the roof of a house. Will probably never be able to ski again :( not sure though.

Damn man - hope your situation is better now - thank you much for the kind thoughts - mine are extended to you as well. (pretty much same age too - im 41). We do heal slower in our AARP age group - lol. Thanks again man - i really do appreciate the thoughts.

JUST a broken leg AND crushed ankle, that's all?!?! Holy cow man! Let's send some healing vibes to dogsinapile!

I am soooooo bored at work! It's finally raining here in Chico, work is slow until January. So it's LMA, dl's, the gym and just everyday life. It's hard to fill the 8-10 hours/day in which I normally(9 months/year)work like a headless chicken. October-January, the biz slows to a trickle. I still have work to do. I still have to be at this desk when email or telephone requests come in, but I have time to type all day...

YOU POOR, POOR PEOPLE...!
